Engaging Interfaith Toolkit

This training manual aims to create awareness of SGBV and Femicide, by creating safer spaces to enable, navigate and embrace both inter-religious and traditional leadership involvement in the protection, healing and emancipation of communities directly affected by SGBV. Through this training manual these terms will be used con-concurrently i.e. ‘religio-cultural’1 as a way of engaging openly within the diverse dynamics of inter-faith context and traditional leadership. The engagement will be sensitive and respect social and cultural diversity as felt and lived in our communities where the agency to curb the scourge of (Sexual Gender-Based Violence) SGBV and Femicide is demanding urgent attention. Then calls for religio-cultural involvement to review their position on engaging in the struggle to protect human rights for the most vulnerable children and women in communities.
